Tear gas may have the immediate effect of dispersing the peaceful demonstrators, but if you make people cry, and the tears are from their heart, how can you govern? By

go0fnugget:

During WWII, Japanese American soldiers were among the first to liberate the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. “U.S military commanders decided it would be bad public relations if Jewish prisoners were freed by Japanese American soldiers whose own families were imprisoned in American concentration camps,” therefore, these Japanese American soldiers who liberated hundreds of Jews are missing in our history lessons.

Wow. 

See, that implies that our history lessons actually talk about the fact that our government put Japanese Americans IN camps - and that by our silence we LET them. We condoned it. That’s on the heads of every white person who stood silently by and said nothing.
Also, yeah, not regularly taught.

Park Geun-Hye Resign!

The government has in fact been accused of using the country’s secret services to manipulate the last presidential election… pointing the finger at the president, the priest went on to say that, she “was not chosen by the people. Elections are the flower of democracy; if we pervert its meaning, the will of the people is manipulated by the government. The only way out of this situation is to act according to conscience. Park should launch an investigation into electoral fraud and repent.”

Rallies in S. Korea continued on Sep. 27 against what protesters call a fraudulent election. Local media still neglecting political unrest.

Protesters demand the resignation of President Park Guen-Hye due to the fraudulent elections in 2012. They also called for the dismantling of the National Intelligence Service (NIS) which intervened in the presidential election.

You may remember, danggeun was harassed by a disgusting porn blog that reblogged pictures not only of her but of her mother, with gross captions, and refused to remove them only until child pornography was found in their archive. (Sound familiar?)
Well, this asshole is vengeful and has resurrected a gross, fetishizing porn blog with the name whoredannguenwhore.
…It’s pretty fucking apparent what that was directed to. This is a very disgusting attempt at victimizing an Asian woman who was already harassed and fetishized by this repulsive piece of garbage fuck.
I know I asked you guys to boost a post earlier but this one is a bit more important - this is the direct harassment of a WoC.
Report whoredannguenwhore as well as Tumblr user pickle95 who seems to be associated with this garbage.
This is gross. Fucking fucking gross. Please help her out, guys.

What's happening in Hong Kong????
Anonymous

convalesc:

Protests are happening in the Central & Western District, the Wan Chai District and the Kowloon District of Hong Kong since 22nd September, since Beijing withdrew their promise of universal suffrage for Hong Kong. These protests were meant to be and are PEACEFUL PROTESTS.

Yet police in riot gear are attacking crowds of UNARMED pro-democracy student protesters and protesters from the Occupy Central movement (a civil disobedience movement aimed at achieving universal suffrage occurring in Hong Kong). At least NOW TV, BBC NEWS, and APPLE DAILY have confirmed that pepper spray and rubber bullets are being fired at demonstrators and there is tear gas being launched into crowds and it’s spreading INSIDE the Central MTR station. 

Judging from all the photos and Apple Daily news reports I’ve seen, there are police stationed at Lippo Center, outside Lan Kwai, and Jordan + Tung Chung MTR stations look entirely closed off to everyone but the police. There are protesting crowds in Causeway, in Mong Kok on Argyle Street, in the HKAPA and Gloucester Road + Nathan Road are FILLED with protesters.

Hong Kong is no longer safe. Central has been paralyzed. 

There’s a live feed of everything that’s happening here
